They compare him to AK47 to give you some idea of what you are hoping to get. He's more athletic and 2 inches taller though. Also his shot is pretty raw right now, but scouts seem to expect it to develop. At least to where it's solid. He'll play both F spots in the NBA like AK. His value is his length and athleticism/quickness as a defender. He can move his feet to stay in front of guys like Lebron and he can use his length to help double big guys or slashers. He'll run the floor and be an excellent finisher at the rim. Some have compared his athleticism and finishing to Blake even, or at least a poor man's Blake.
